The year got off to a bit of a shaky start with a big crash, luckily no one was hurt except one 1098 Ducati.
In February I posted a long term review of my 2015 R1 as we jetted out to New Zealand for a 10 day trip of the North Island.
We arrived in New Zealand to a fantastic greeting by fellow kiwi motoblogger Geoff James and then later in Palmerston North we met another moto blogger Andrew Thompson.
It was fantastic meeting both guys albeit too briefly, I'm sure Andrews neighbours haven't recovered yet from the bushpigs maniacal ramblings.
April brought about the International Festival of speed at Sydney motorsport park where unfortunately for Stu his race came to a bone crunching end with a fractured collarbone, again.
We also got to meet one of our all time favourite racing legends Troy Bayliss.
Revisiting some old memories in my home town with some long forgotten trophies.
The bushpig did some drag racing at Sydney Motorsport Park whilst I watched on.
And it was back to SMSP to watch the Australian Superbikes.
Phillip Island Moto GP
The motogp circus arrived at Phillip Island in October and we got to enjoy the sights and sounds of those 280Hp 1000cc missiles. I also caught up briefly with Victorian motoblogger Jules. Seems to be the year for blogger meet ups.
Our annual Snowy Mountains ride occurred again with a few different faces this time out but with some familiar roads and few new ones thrown in.
Merry Christmas to everyone and hope you have a wonderful new year and I will see you all on the other side with some more riding adventures. I have a few big things planned already coming up in February, could be some WSBK action and another overseas jaunt.
